  • A Million People Are Jailed at China's Gulags. I Managed to Escape. Here's What Really Goes on Inside – Sayragul Sauytbay & David Stavrou, Haaretz – This deeply moving and disturbing testimony from a woman who escaped China’s Xinjiang concentration camps corroborates what is now a lengthy record of the atrocities being committed by the government of the US’s largest trading partner.
  • What it’s like to bring up a baby in a war zone – Waad al-Kateab & Imogen White, 1843 – If you were going to pick a bad time and place to have a baby in the last few years, surely Aleppo in 2015 would make the list. But there they were, and there was the baby. What do you do? How do you raise her? Do you have another?

  • Not your Tibetan Buddhism – Mark Hay, Aeon – You’ve heard of the Dalai Lama, you may even know that Tibet has been controlled by China since 1959. But other than that, most of us are under-, or even mis-, informed about the traditional faith of its people, which possesses surprisingly large influence in the Western imagination.

  • Seven thoughts on life without Twitter – Brad East, Resident Theologian – I’ve said it before, and I’ll say again: We might all be better off if we didn’t use Twitter. Maybe I should tweet that.

  • October 22nd, 2019 – Olivia Jaimes, Nancy – Print this comic out and tape it to your computer.
